Carroll Cathey Laughter went home to be with her Lord on March 3, 2020 after a short battle with cancer surrounded by her loving family. She was  a daughter of the late Robert” Bob” and Sybil Cathey, and was also preceded in death by her husband, James P. “Rooney”Laughter, who died in 1999.

 

A Henderson County native, Carroll was a beloved and well known member of the Mills River Community graduating from Mills River High School in 1952. She continued her education at Gardner Webb College as well as Cecil’s Business College. Carroll married “Rooney” in 1956 and together they lovingly reared their   three children. For the last 60 years of her life, Carroll managed the books and kept the boys in line at Church Street Exxon Automotive, chatting with all the local customers as well as tourists that needed   help whilst passing through Hendersonville. Carroll was a devoted Christian and spent evenings and weekends with dear friends participating as a faithful member of Mills River United Methodist Church, and was also a charter member of the Mills River Methodist Choir, the Mills River Life Enrichment Center, and the Lillian Hall Circle respectively. The love and pride of Carroll’s life was her family, who will deeply miss her spunky spirit and her generous heart.

 

She is survived by one daughter, Lynn Laughter Capps and husband, “Bobby”, of East Flat Rock, and two sons, Larry and Robbie Laughter, both of Mills River. She is also survived by her little sister, Delores Cathey Meadows and husband, Richie, of Mills River.
